Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Save one salty reference to sporting an embarrassing "boner during PE", the eponymous Blink 182, the band's fifth studio album is mercifully bereft of the references to farts and turds that have littered the lyrics of preceding million-sellers such as Enema of the State. Both Mark Hoppus and Tom DeLonge have become proud dads and thus have familiarised themselves with the fragrant pleasures of the 3.30am soiled-nappy change. Suddenly, shit isn't funny anymore, which is probably just as well seeing as Blink 182's comedic turns make the average Carry On film look like something by Moliere. Otherwise it's pretty much business as usual. Guitar buzz, girl troubles and teenage hormone dilemmas, big chanting choruses come flying out like volleys of snot from a pit bull terrier's nose and the whole thing sounds like Bob Mould's Sugar fronted by the imaginary snivelling younger sibling of Dean Friedman. While "Easy Target" bucks the trend by indulging in snarling minor-chord meltdown and Robert Smith of the Cure is commendably mopey on "All of This", to call this loveably hummable buffed-up racket "punk" would be wholly disrespectful to the much cherished memory of Sham 69 or the Lurkers. The fans will love it, of course, but the uncommitted will find themselves somewhat boner-less, even during PE. --Kevin Maidment

Product Description

This is the fifth studio album from US punk rockers Blink 182 following up the hugely successful 2001 release Take Off Your Pants & Jacket.

The UK edition features 15 tracks including the single Feeling This, as well as 2 bonus tracks, Not Now & Anthem Part 2 (Live In Chicago). Includes enhanced material featuring exclusive videos created by the band! MCA. 2003.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Different 1 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
blink-182 are one of those bands that seemed like they would never grow up but as this album proves, they have. I'm a huge fan of their earlier releases like Cheshire Cat and Dude Ranch and I have to admit that when I first listened through the album I was shocked. Where were the jokes, the funny songs and the great riffs? Had they put the wrong CD in the case?
After I'd listened to the album a few more times it really grew on me and there are many outstanding tracks on the album but at the same time there are still tracks which make you want to press skip on your CD player.
The musicianship is amazing and there are lots of strange effects in almost every song with layers of guitars and one song uses 4(!) basses on the outro so there is always something new to pick up on each time you hear the album and great depth to every song. You can really tell they spent a long time on each song to make it 'perfect'.
If you are a blink fan chances are you'll buy this album anyway to make up your own mind about it, but if you are still not sure whether to get it or not, I would say buy it. You may think it's the worst thing you've heard in ages and blink are no-more (like me) but I can assure you three or four listens later you'll be hooked and realise that, whilst not the greatest blink album, it's right up there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance 26 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
Blink 182 introduced me to the music that I listen to today, the very first time I heard 'All The Small Things'. If it wasnt for them I wouldn't be into such great music. I loved all of their previous albums, I loved seeing them live with their great jokes and laughs.

Then this album arrived, I was just the same as everybody else who critisized it for being nothing like their previous outings. I made myself hate it because it just wasn't Blink. Now nearly 3 years down the line, knowing that they had split up. I started listening to this album again and I realised what a great album it is, even though they changed their sound it is a masterpiece and they went out on a high note.

Thanks Blink for all your great music.

Whilst waiting for this album to come out i knew from various articals that the blink boys wanted to do something different, or more heavier, and this is the finished item, and any Blink fan or Punk fan will love it. Gone are the jokes and pop sounding music and now we have a much darker side, it is a shame that they could not have done this sooner but should have know that it was in the wind with Tom off doing the BCR project and Travis off with the Transplants the music was always getting heavier.
All songs are fantastic in there own way with everything you could want from a Punk band, i was a fan from the start and thought that Dude Ranch was there best effort yet with TOYPAJ running a close second, but this eclipses both of them, stand out tracks have to be Feeling this, I Miss You, Go, All of this (which is the best on the album with Robert Smith of the Cure guesting)and I'm lost without you, but every song sounds great apart from Obvious which to me sounds to much like Tiny Voices off the BCR album.
But if your looking for a much darker heavier feel to Blink 182 then you'll be happy, even if your not then this is still an album to have, the boys have grown up and producing the music they should be, to a great sounding finish, and Travis gives the best drumming experience you will ever hear on one album, so all in all Superb, fantastic best blink album yet !!!!!!!!!!.

By dynamitekid156 VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Blink 182 didn't make a great deal of progression across their successful career. They made one great leap when Travis Barker, arguably the best drummer in punk rock history, replaced founding drummer Scott Raynor, but outside of that there was little evidence of it until this album. This untitled, not self-titled album was one final stab at maturity. It burned them out, and they broke up shortly before they finished promoting it; the perfect way to bow out, having proved themselves.

Their previous masterpiece, Enema Of The State, bares little resemblance to this eclectic, lovely collection. That was an album of adolescent frustration through the eyes of a sophomore comedian, and the music was more or less straight pop-punk. Here, there are no joke songs - although the toe-curling spoken word section of 'Violence' comes close, though not deliberately - and the lyrics have gone from teenage jokes to more adult longing and lost loves. After the shameless retread of Take Off Your Pants And Jacket, this is definitely welcome.

Augmented by pianos, synthesisers, a Robert Smith guest vocal and dozens of ideas, the band show themselves to be more ambitious than you would expect multi-platinum selling pop-punkers to be. 'Feeling This,' with its effect-laden drum opening, shows you that this album has gone somewhere else, before alternating lyrics between the romantic and sexual sides of love. It is, in many ways, one of their greatest singles and certainly their finest album opener. The other singles show the band breaking further boundaries - 'Always' all flat-fifth chords, spilling over four minutes to be their longest single to date; 'I Miss You,' an all-acoustic ballad with tongues not in cheeks; and the claustrophobic 'Down.
